Brent acima dos 40 dólares
- Markets were mixed in yesterday's session. U.S. stocks surged, while EM equities posted modest increases and European stocks declined moderately.
- In fixed-income markets, U.S. and German sovereign yields edged higher while euro area peripheral spreads narrowed as data showed that the ECB continues to act boldly. Last week, the ECB's balance sheet rose by €600bn on the back of June's TLTRO-III settlement (total net lending increased by 532bn) and strong asset purchases (+41.1bn).
- In oil markets, the price of the barrel of Brent fluctuated moderately above $40.
- On the data front, U.S. consumer confidence rebounded in June according to the Conference Board's index (98.1 points, well below early-2020 levels, although its 'expectations' subindex jumped back to pre-coronavirus levels). Euro area headline inflation nudged up to 0.3% yoy in June but core inflation ticked down (0.8% from 0.9% in May).
